I was attempting to clean out more files off my harddrive. I already agree that I’m being an idiot. A cheap idiot. I should just go and buy 100 freaking external harddrives so I wouldn’t waste time doing this, because when I do this – I get way sidetracked and come across old photos, which I want to “re-edit” with all the tricks I’ve learned over the years, and of course (I know I’m having a bad case of runon sentence diarrhea here) the next thing I want to do is get them all resized and prepped to show on this blogsite so you can join me on the flashback LOVE!

This was in December of 2004. A month or so after Timmy Kettering let me check out HIS 20D (I swear, what he buys – I don’t even question – I just buy) – I zoomed off to the store to plop down my non-earning income on that piece of art. Of course, you know when you have a new toy – it’s just impossible to actually read the freakin’ pamphlet it comes with (and if you do, you’re a freak!!!)……. so here are some shots I did with my first ever digital SLR!

Ah, memories. I remember at that time – Sarah and I had just decided to move to NEW YORK CITY and I was so sure with that 20D – I was going to become over-famous and have the world knocking (or flashing my DEAF doorbell) on my door with the instance that they MUST have me work for them. HA! NYC bitch slapped me.

first1I used to stalk Sarah everytime she was getting ready for a night out on the town. Now, I feel like I’m just always so busy and she has to come get me (all dressed up) and say, “let’s go…” I miss the little moments.

first2Um. don’t ASK me why I thought her pretty hand with her 1 year old ring (this was 2004!) and the boudin would be a nice cominbaton. That boudin is UGLY, but so freaking delicious!

first3This is at Sarah’s parents home – on the second floor. It’s their 70’s room (office/hangout). I really want that yellow couch – it would look absolutely fantastic in our living room!

first4This was right after I bought the camera. I like how the orange lines (reflector/heat lines/whatever they are) look in this shot. A bit weird.

first5My love affair of self portraits – it just continues.

first6Just a shadow shot I thought looked cool.

first7I really was just taking photos of everything/anything! It obviously even got to the point where I did this – placed Sarah’s green shirt on the green carpet, and put my green pant-ed leg with the green photo. It’s a bit borderline erotic for you feet people, silk people, or if you’re really get turned on by the color green… have a go at it. Be my guest. Moan.

first8This is us in December 2004 @ an Xmas party @ Mindy & Jeremy’s home. We look young!

and thin.

first9I hated this shot back then but with my editing skills I know now – I LOVE it!!!!!!

Rebecca Jesgar Reed – Rock it!

Man, and you wonder why I’m always so overwhelmed with crap to do. I haven’t even done my tax shit.
